Each week of #DigPINS brings a new area of focus that leads us through the “PINS” in DigPINS. While each week introduces a new topic, our discussions often build off of and overlap with each other. Here’s the schedule:

  • Week 1: Digital IdentityJune 1st
  • Week 2: Digital Networks June 8th
  • Week 3: Digital Pedagogy June 15th
  • Week 4: Digital Scholarship June 22nd

You’ll notice we don’t actually go in P I N S order — unfortunately “DigINPS” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.


The time commitment to actively participate in this experience is estimated to be at least 3-5 hours a week, but it could be more depending on your interest and motivation.

There will be a small amount of “content” for every topic (pedagogy, identity, networks, and scholarship) that will be posted here and linked in the menu above. You will spend some time with this content in the form of readings or videos, however, the bulk of what makes #DigPINS great is participation in conversation and community.


Every topic (pedagogy, identity, networks, and scholarship) will have a guiding page on this site and the facilitators will post readings, videos, and planned activities for that topic.
